Bird Obscured by Museum Goers --- Day 7/227

Walk: SFMOMA, PGCC
Distance: 4.5 miles, small yoga

 Detail: Morris Graves (American 1910-2001), Bird Maddened by the Sound of Machinery in the Air
1944, watercolor on rice paper

Here is why dark art can be difficult to display.  (Ie, reflection).  The full work (below) was even more difficult to capture.


Too bad because Ciwt is very drawn to Morris's art as is Wayne Thiebaud who chose this painting to be in the thoughtful, educational and intimate show of his personal selections from the SFMOMA collection now up until next spring.*
